    You do not need key to download Windows 10. If something asked for it, it is probably phishing.

    About "use that key to download genuine Windows 10 version" - you do not need any key to download a Windows 10 ISO.
    See Clean Install Windows 10 - TenForumsTutorial

    If your activation is digital [see Settings, Update, Activation] then your reinstalled Windows 10 will be re-activated when you go back online afterwards to give the computer a chance to connect to the MS activation servers - they store a record of activation for your hardware profile.

    According to your posted pic, you are already running Windows 10 Pro edition, and are currently up to date with all the cumulative updates. If it is activated and all is working, there's really nothing more you need to do. And, as stated, no key is ever needed just to download an ISO of any version of Windows. What more are you trying to accomplish?

    I am not using genuine license on Windows 10 Pro. On checking from Media Creation Tool I am getting Windows 10 Home version. What I mean is as I had Windows 8.1 RTM Pro so can I use this key while Clean Install of Windows 10 Pro ?

    Sorry, I'm still a bit confused here. If that pic you just posted is your current OS, Media Creation Tool will offer to download what you are currently set up as. What indicates to you that you are not using a genuine license?

    What does this show on your machine? Settings>Update and Security>Activation:

    Ahhhhhh!! You can't get there from here. You are using a computer that is registered to whomever you work for, it would seem. Is this a Work Computer? Or a Personal at Home system with a Business License?
